Let me begin by saying just how good God is. He is simply AMAZING, WONDERFUL, AWESOME. Who he is to me just can’ t be described in words.
Good Morning Sunshine!!!! These are the words that my daughter and I exchange every morning when I wake her up. Today, it just wasn’t the typical hello. I felt that she was speaking to me addressing me as Sunshine. I thought to myself, “there is nothing sunny about me today. I woke up late, my hair is not cooperating, I fell asleep on laundry last night so I had to find something that looked decent to wear today blah blah blah. I am not in the sunshine mood today!” Then I remembered that this is the day that he Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it! (Psalm 118:24) Despite how I felt or how I looked, the sun was shining in me. I was still a child of God. I still had the victory and I still had the authority to command my day and change the very atmosphere that I was in. There was a king in me and I needed to act like it. As I dressed her I kept saying Good Morning Sunshine! until my attitude adjusted and I got myself together after all I do not live my life for myself, but so that others can see Christ.
Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill can not be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and give praise to your father in heaven.”
I want to remind us today that no matter how our day starts , goes, or ends, the SON lives within us and he wants to shine through us. God had invested something in us and he wants the return on his investment, so go and light up the world!
Good Morning Sunshines!!!!
